Webster Groves Crit in St. Louis.
The course favored my style of riding and since I was only 1 point away from my cat 3 upgrade my teammates worked for me the whole race.
I sat in third to fifth almost the entire race, usually behind a teammate (Gabe).
Teammates chased down a couple of potential breaks and I was forced to chase down only one.
I sat in the entire race, not listening to my body when it screamed "TAKE A FLYER OFF THE FRONT!"
My sprint started just a bit earlier than I wanted, but the technical part of the finish meant that whoever went into the last two turns in the front would probably win.
One teammate won a $50 prime, Gabe took 5th, and I took the win.
My last race as a cat 4 will be next weekend at the Illinois State Championships. How sweet would that be to walk away with one final win!
Photo was taken just before I crossed the finish line as I was beginning to put my arms in the air.
